Home School

WELCOME to our Back to School Bash! We had 8 boys in attendance for our day of school fun! Upon arrival, students were assigned a "class schedule" which listed times & activites for the day. 1st period: Art

Students created original works of LETTER art

Showing off their masterpieces

2nd period: Home EC

Our budding chefs made the edible crayons I posted last week (I forgot to take a picture of the finished project but they turned out great! The boys placed them in pencil boxes & took them home as a favor.)

3rd Period: Math class

4th period: Lunch

Served cafeteria style

After a morning of classes, they boys were HUNGRY

After lunch, the boys went to 5th period Music class (they played Guitar Hero on Wii).

6th period: Sundae School.

The boys said this was SSWWEEEET

we also had a few favors for our students

stored in locker bins with index card labels

And the finale, 7th period: Science

Step One: Place Mentos in tube

Step 2: Pull cord

Step 3: RUN for cover!

The boys had a BLAST & are already talking about next year's party!

What an awesome "school day"!
I love the way you set up the day! I love the index alphabet cards too! I was trying to figure out how to use the alphabet for mine and this would be perfect! I am going to have to use that one!
Thanks for sharing!

It turned out great! Glad you were able to find those trays. The class schedule is a great idea and it looks like they had a great time, but something tells me that Science class may have been their favorite.

What a great way to get them excited about going back to school!

OK, this is seriously so so cute. Love the class schedule idea - I bet the boys had a ton of fun. The decor turned out great.

I'm going to have to get in gear so that I can pull this off for my kiddos right before school starts.
